A Tutorial on the Application and Setting of Collector Feeder Overcurrent Relays at Wind Electric Plants

Wind generating plants employ several distribution class circuits called “collector feeders” which enable the combined output of the wind turbine generators connected to them to be supplied to the bulk electric transmission system. The application and coordination of overcurrent protection systems for collector feeders at wind plants depends on several system characteristics, including collector feeder design, available fault currents, and the protective devices applied to the wind turbine generators. This paper provides a brief tutorial on the application and setting of overcurrent relays for collector feeders at wind plants and includes examples of typical calculations and coordination plots.
